  • Summary: Not bad... Has the spirit of the originals with a nice new visual upgrade. Is it great? No. But it is completely playable. If you ignore the cheesy characterization (which I think you're supposed to) you get a very pretty very old school shooter with a few new school bells and whistles.

  • Summary: I think I may have been too lenient on Alien Breed: Impact, I gave it a 6/10. Alien Breed: Assault takes the flaws from impact and magnifies them. I seriously wonder if someone at Team17 was tasked with going through everything that made Impact frustrating, got confused and instead of making things less frustrating made them more frustrating instead. The map is still unusable but now has a wobbly effect added.

  • Summary: After enjoying the first game, I went straight to the second. Although the games are quite simplistic and have a basic formula, they are fun. You walk through eerie dark corridors most of the time and shoot alien bugs. I was, however, sort of disappointed by the fact that this second instalment didn’t really introduce anything new to the series and is more like Alien Breed 1.5 than Alien Breed 2. The environments are exactly the same as in the first game.

  • Summary: This is not a spectacular game by any means but it is still worth playing if you have some extra time and money. The game does a good job at creating intense moments of action and suspense but beyond that it is simply an average shooter.

  • Summary: While not an overly satisfying title, Alien Breed does provide a nice change of pace from other shooter games. While the core gameplay is relatively solid the game becomes quite repetitive with only 5 weapons (2 which you find halfway through the game), and enemies which although different are still dispatched using the exact same methods as any other. After playing the game for a while the fights start to become predictable.

  • Summary: Neither a fun nor good game. The aiming and camera are both absolutely horrible. The camera (which seems as though it can't decide whether it wants to be a top-down or regular third-person shooter) will sometimes not allow you to see certain enemies if you are close to a wall. The levels all look exactly the same and get repetitive extremely fast.

  • Summary: Steam Summer Sale Free Prize! Coop! Achievements! First time I played it I didn't give it an honest chance. After giving it another go, I've changed my tune. It's not fantastic, but it is above average for a title in this genre, especially using a game controller. I'd go so far as to say it's not worth a look using a keyboard and mouse.

  • Summary: I have become convinced gamers are turning into a bunch of cry babies. This game for this format kicks ass, its fast paced , fun and addictive. the graphics are sharp ( maybe the people with Dell / Celerons should not give reviews) on my system. I had this game sitting in my library for 3 weeks and decided to check it out.. 3 hours flew by. its a top down shooter action packed and puzzles tossed in for good measure. have not seen a single glitch.

  • Summary: Ive only played this for a short while, like 30 minutes but so far its dull, some aliens that die with little effort and unimpressive sound, the guns are flat sounding it really needs some environmental audio effects to give a better ambiance, ricochet sounds and echo. i hit a couple of bugs not sure what caused them exactly, i lost mouse aim pressing esc cured that, but then i lost ability to control menus while at a console, so i couldn't save and buy items, shift +...

  • Summary: Don't be fooled by the title, this game is nowhere near as fun as Alien Swarm. Alien Breed looks very much like Alien Swarm but the minute you play the game, damn does it suck!! The biggest problem I have with the game are it's play mechanics, they are terrible and the shaking of the screen, itâ
